Western Isles

Welcome to the Western Isles Network

We host the meetings across the Western Isles in Uist, Lewis and Harris so that communities can be connected and take part. The area is widespread geographically and we change the location each time to reach communities. There are online opportunities to join the Scottish wide network once a year and there are also drop in clinics for anyone who wants to ask some questions about intergenerational work. We have had a busy 2023 with two in person meetings and one online. We are looking forward to 2024. You are encouraged to contact us if you would like to have anything on the agenda for future meetings. Sign up to come along to our next network meeting in 2024 soon (which will hopefully be hybrid) and find out more about intergenerational work in your local area.

We hope that people can spread the word to come along and take part in activities, learn about ideas, share networking time and Bella will bring along resources that you may be able to use in your IG practice. We are keen to deliver training in the area too but only when we know that there is an interest. Contact Bella or telephone 07927550730 for further information.

GWT have recently recruited two new volunteer network coordinators for the Western Isles, who have kindly offered their time and experience and skills to take part in a volunteer role. We welcome the new volunteer co-ordinator for the Western Isles in Uist North and South is Vicki Manchester and in Lewis and Harris Bellann O’Brien. We are delighted to have them on board.
